Having problems with your Dyson DC14 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum ?

When the vacuum is on and in the "stand up" position in oder to use the hand held part of it, the top makes a strange sucking sound that it never did in the beginning, But as soon as you use it as a floor vacuum it stops.

Answers :

If I understand the situation, the sound you hear is probably air being pulled in through a hole in a section of the hose/pipe. This is not a result of damage, it was disigned this way.
\015\012There is probably a part which rotates or slides over the opening to close it.

My vacuum just stopped working, so I don't know what the problem is. I used it in the kitchen to vacuum the hard wood floor. I turned it off, and a few minutes later, turned it back on to finish vaccuuming the kitchen floor. It just would not turn on. I had not unplugged it or did anything to it. I then tried to see if it would work in another plug, and no luck. I'm trying to figure out if it can be fixed or if I need to look for a new vacuum.

When I get most Vacuums that have dies on people most of them the wire has been worn and cut one or more wires on the plug cord. Sometimes the cut can be over looked. Please unplug and check the wire carefully.Also please post the make model a ... Kenmore 23913 Progressive PowerMate Bagged Canister Vacuum

After using the vacuum for a while it would stop running. After sitting several hours it would run again. Now it won't run at all. It was just a couple of months old and I haven't been able to use it again. It was never used much and we paid good money for what has turned out to be a poor machine. Any suggestion?

My Eureka Atlantis Express is brand new - never used. I took it out of the box, read the manual, filled the soap and clean water tanks, put them in. I lifted the machine off the counter to take into the living room but all the water came running out of the bottom all over the kitchen floor. I can see where the little white plastic piece sticks up into the water release valve and lets the water out. How do you stop this? Can it be fixed?

Won't start. My son was using the vacuum & Didn't change the bag. The vacuum was making the full bag smell, but the light was't on & it didn't stop. I stopped him, changed the bag, checked the filter, closed the compartments & turned on the vacuum. Nothing happened. I checked to be sure that it was plugged in, that wasn't the problem. I've let the vacuum "rest" for several days, It still won't start. Any suggestions?

I just bought a Dyson DC 14 All Floors Vacuum and assembled it exactly as the manual said. It sounded normal as I went over hard floors but as soon as I went on carpet, the vacuum was extremely loud. There's no strings or debris in the powerhead... what else would cause this?

The bottom bar that encases the brush is flush to the floor when using the vacuum. This causes the suction to "stick" the vacuum to the floor (lamenate) and also as there is no ground clearance debris is just pushed around. We have to nearly stand the thing upright to get the ground clearance to be enough for things to start being sucked up. I have taken apart, re-assembled etc and nothing is working.

I'm having the same problem.  The bottom plate is not level with the floor unless the vacuum is nearly in the upright position.  Its like there should be a spring pushing the bottom plate towards the floor.  Anyone know how to fix this ... Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
